K-2, like the mountain he is named for, clearly stood stood above the crowd at the 2001 approval. Excellent gaits, a strikingly refined exterior and an outstanding temperament distinguish this modern refinement stallion. Two of the most successful Trakehner mares in postwar history are combined in his pedigree–Schwalbenburg, the dam of numerous licensed stallions, and the former Bundeschampion mare, Kalinka, with a touch of the most refined Anglo-Arabian bloodlines through the extra class stallion, Upan la Jarthe, sire of many licensed sons and numerous sport horses for all disciplines and especially known for the famous Inschallah. K2 was a high achiever at his 30 day test with a score of 8.8 in dressage. He finished his 70 day test in 2004 in Neustadt-Dosse with the second best dressage index in a group of strong competitors (133.21/2nd among 48 stallions). In 2003 he qualified for the Bundeschampionat for German riding horses in Warendorf and has meanwhile collected top ribbons in elementary level tests for young dressage horses. K2 has already proved his best attributes as a sire. At the Trakehner Foal Auction on the occasion of the stallion approval in Neumünster in 2004, the most expensive filly and colt were from his first crop. In 2005 at the approval in Neustadt/Dosse, his first son was licensed and at the 2005 Oldenburg Stallion Market, Swedish buyers purchased an especially strong typed young stallion.
